Born in Slovenia, a country with rich culinary traditions. Her ultimate goal is to present the best Slovenia has to offer on a plate combined with nature, traditions and the local way of life. Food and wine lover, outdoor enthusiast, working in tourism for the last 8 years.
She was the first who organized hands-on cooking classes in Ljubljana for travelers. Food has always played an important role in her family and she's continuing that legacy. She wants to pass on the traditional Slovenian recipes that have been in her family for generations. The recipes are just one part of it. It's really about a love for food, for cooking, for eating, which is in the heart (and stomach) of her family life.
Her dream is to bring traditional Slovenian recipes to the world and help the world to discover Slovenian food. With her first cookbook Cook Eat Slovenia, now everyone can taste Slovenia at home.
In her free time she enjoys the thrills of hiking, sailing, running and skiing with her friends.
Špela Vodovc has been a local cooking teacher since October 2013.
